Chantecaille Brilliant Lip Gloss is so ultra-shiny, I felt like it made my eyes sparkle and my teeth look whiter. That's because it contains something "micro-spheres of vegetal polysaccarides," and while I'm not quite sure what those are, I do know that they made my lips hydrated and sexy, and my lips looked plumper without any stinging.
This is Chantecaille's debut lip gloss with a wand—and a brilliant wand, if I may add. It's actually a generous brush, as opposed to a sponge or a few measly bristles, which makes for very even application. I tried all eight shades and felt that Mirth (a soft pink-peach), Love (a super-sheer pink), and Charm (a neutral tone for darker skin) were best for nude lips. Buy them here for $26.
